On today's episode I talk to musician Jimmy Flemion. Jimmy and
his brother Dennis began playing music together in the late '70s in
a number of different groups, eventually forming the band The Frogs
in 1980. Since then, the band has vacillated between cult status
and mainstream success, championed by such musicians as Billy
Corgan, Kurt Cobain, Beck and Eddie Vedder, and releasing albums on
labels like Matador and Scratchie. Though Dennis passed away in
2012, Jimmy continues to write and record music, recently touring
backed by Even Dando of The Lemonheads. At the beginning of April,
The End of All Music released The Frogs' previously-unreleased very
first studio album 1st.
